Programs

Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Drop-in Center

Our drop-in center acts a safe and sacred space for our clients in and around Richmond, Virginia. Located in an undisclosed location, our drop-in center is the flagship of our client services and provides a space where clients can come to receive support, search and apply for jobs, spend time with a mentor, spend time with other clients, and receive additional services they may need.

Program 2

Court Advocacy

Our Court Advocacy Team exists (i) to be the initial contact for potential clients who are coming out of jail and learning about GH for the first time and (ii) to provide support for clients who may be coming back for a court date. Our clients may be required to testify in a particular case and can be a very difficult and potentially traumatizing time. Our Court Advocacy Team does not provide legal advice but accompanies a client to offer support and encouragement. We partner with pro-bono attorneys that provide legal counsel and advocate for our clients to ensure their voice is heard.

Program 3

Case Management

We provide comprehensive case management, as well as other programs at Gray Haven, but at the center of our programs and case management is the relationship between the case manager and the client. It's beyond connecting dots. It's a supportive relationship that places the client as the top priority throughout their time with Gray Haven. Case management is proven to be an essential and effective piece in helping victims of human trafficking navigate the complexity of rebuilding their life. At Gray Haven, the case manager whom first begins working with a client is the same case manager throughout their process. There are multiple possible needs a client has and it's the responsibility of the case manager to identify and collaborate with the client and client services staff to establish obtainable goals and action plans. A case manager may help a client find food and clothing, access medical care and substance abuse treatment, transportation, and housing among other services.

Program 4

Crisis Response

Gray Haven's Crisis Response Team initially formed organically when law enforcement would identify a potential victim of human trafficking during operations in Henrico County to combat human trafficking. Law enforcement would call and Gray Haven would respond 24 hours a day/7 days a week. It became obvious that there needed to be in place a sustainable method of responding immediately to potential cases of human trafficking. Gray Haven began to form their approach through experience responding to trafficking situations and by consulting with other agencies who had a formalized crisis response protocol. Today Gray Haven works with local, state, and federal law enforcement, as well as with service providers, to do direct crisis intervention and assessment with potential victims of human trafficking. The overall goal of the Crisis Response Team is to assist a third party agency in identifying a victim of trafficking and provide immediate victim services. The Crisis Response Team is made up of Gray Haven staff and volunteers who are experienced and specially trained to provide crisis intervention to victims of human trafficking. The staff members are on-call to respond to victims 24-hours a day.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Our ultimate goal is to assist victims of human trafficking to live a healthy and exploitation free life. Furthermore, we aim to equip Central Virginia with effective strategies to combat human trafficking.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    We will accomplish our goals by applying evidence based practices to care for victims of human trafficking and by collaborating with law enforcement and service providing agencies.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We follow a specific model of action at TGH. Clients go through a layered case management process that encompasses many different avenues to provide them with success in their lives. Some of these avenues include Safety Plans & Needs Assessment, Life Skill help, Team Meetings, Mental Health Screening etc. These are only a few minor things Gray Haven provides to clients. As of now, we are working on improving and adding to these subjects.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Clients` display senses of empowerment and independence in their individual lives. They realize that they are capable of handling the daily struggles of life, without continued case management from The Gray Haven. Ultimately, the clients` are ready to move on and take care of themselves but realize that the workers at TGH are there if they need any assistance down the road.

    Progress will be made when TGH is able to grow bigger and continue to make a lasting impact on the community.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    2014 Accomplishments
    Created 3 new programs, including job training and group therapy. Made 23 crisis response calls. Assisted clients in receiving free medical aid through our partnership with Bon Secours for a total of 116 medical visits Made contact with 41 new clients.
    2015 Goals
    Job Readiness-Establish formal partnerships with five business partners to create streamlined access to jobs for TGHP clients.
    Law Enforcement Partnership-Forge a formal partnership with the City of Richmond court system, Police Department, Justice Center, and Public Defenders Office.
    Other Partnerships-Create a collaborative council of anti-trafficking NGOs in Virginia in an effort to meet regularly to share data, best practices, and challenges.
    Hospitality Program-Develop & Implement community-based hospitality/housing program for the Greater Richmond area"Central Intake"-Research the viability of TGHP becoming a central access point for services across Virginia by the beginning of 2016. If viable and needed, begin taking steps to create an implementation timeline, program structure, and necessary partnerships.
    Reclaim: Freedom Beyond Rescue-Film and debut a feature length documentary about life after rescue from trafficking.

    We plan on expanding further in these area in the years to come.
